Yamaha R-N303 Stereo Receiver Joins MusicCast Family

Yamaha just introduced the R-N303 network Hi-Fi stereo receiver that is loaded with wireless connectivity including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Apple AirPlay and DLNA. In addition, it features Yamaha MusicCast wireless multiroom technology that distributes music throughout the house to other MusicCast-enabled products — including Yamaha AV receivers, sound bars, and speakers — all controlled wirelessly from an app on a mobile device. The R-N303 replaces the R-N301 which lacks Bluetooth and MusicCast.

The $350 stereo receiver claims to reproduce music with exceptional quality and clarity from any source. Based on a legacy design, the R-N303 is engineered to reduce noise while preserving audio-signal quality, additionally, the receiver features a Burr-Brown 192kHz/24-bit DAC (digital-to-analog converter) capable of handling high-resolution music files with a high signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio, revealing subtle nuances in music and delivering a sense of spaciousness. Moreover, the Yamaha Original Network Module bolsters S/N performance when playing network- and Bluetooth-connected music sources.

“The R-N303 delivers exceptionally high performance, versatility and value, reflecting the Yamaha commitment to music and to Hi-Fi enthusiasts,” said Robert Goedken, general manager, AV division, Yamaha Corporation of America. “It is a practical choice for enthusiasts who want to enjoy an array of music sources from vinyl to high-resolution audio files stored on networked devices. The R-N303 also inherits the simple and sophisticated design unique to Yamaha with an elegant hairline finished front panel and the aesthetic that harmonizes beautifully with other Hi-Fi audio equipment.”

A wide variety of supported high-resolution formats include 192kHz/24-bit FLAC, WAV and AIFF and 2.8/5.6MHz DSD. For legacy sources, a dedicated phono input is available to spin vinyl. An optical input and a coaxial input deliver pure digital connections to CD players, Blu-ray Disc players, and TVs. The receiver also includes FM/AM tuner and an amplifier with maximum output of 140 watts per channel into 8 ohms.

Pricing and Availability

The Yamaha R-N303 network Hi-Fi stereo receiver will be available August 22, 2017 for $349.95.
